Lift or no lift?

What's up guys. Don't post much here but I'm always on the site. I'm not to familiar with the mechanics of lift kits and spacer kits, and I'm trying to figure out whether or not my TJ (2000) has a lift/spacer kit. Hopefully by looking at the pics I took you can help me out.

Here are a couple pics:






Thanks and merry Christmas all

looks stock, def not a spacer kit. doesnt look like a body lift either

you can measure the front springs, anything more than 12" is your lift height

That's what I was thinking. Initially I thought it had spacers, but upon looking at it closer I couldn't see any.

I'm not ready to drop close to a thousand on a lift kit, but I would like to raise it a bit. Would adding spacers (2") make a noticeable difference? (from a visual aspect, not a driving aspect)

2" of lift would definitely be noticeable visually. What size tires are those?

The tires are 31", should've put that in the original post. Judging by the pictures, is it definitely safe to say there isn't any type of lift?


Edit: just measured the shocks in pics 2 & 3, and they measure 12". With that said, that means there's no lift, correct?

Are your tires stock? Anybody know what size tires come stock on TJs?

I don't see any evident sign of a lift. If it was over 12", whatever is over 12" is your lift, so if it measures 12, then there's no lift. If you don't want to spend thousands, put on daystar 2" spacers. I think they're like $130?

I don't believe those tires are stock. Could be wrong though. Either way, it seems like I can now be sure there is no lift. That said, I'll definitely be adding one soon! For how I use my jeep, spacers are the way to go IMO. I'll be sure to post pics when I'm done

That sounds like a good plan. If you're not wheeling it a spacer lift will give you the stance you're looking for. Check out the Zone Offroad 1.75 inch Spacer Kit With Shocks. People really like Zone products so if you do some reading you'll find good reviews on them. This kit is complete with shocks and bump stop extensions so you'll be all set.

Let me know if you have any questions about anything at all.

I am a Zone fan, but I prefer these (2.25") for the sake of the extra clearance. Just add front bumpstop extensions and you will have 2.25" for ~$100.

The tires are definitely not stock. Only Rubicons came with 31s from the factory.
